Drizzling glaze over your freshly baked cookies or a bundt cake is both visually appealing and a tasty topping. While typically made from scratch using powdered sugar, when you don't have all the ingredients on hand to make your own drizzle glaze, scan your pantry for a jar of canned frosting. Popping the frosting in the microwave for a few seconds will make it thin enough to drizzle over any dessert.
1 Spoon canned frosting into a microwave-safe bowl.
2 Place the bowl in the microwave and heat on high for about 10 seconds.
3 Stir the frosting and continue to heat in 5-second intervals if necessary, until all the icing is melted. Let cool slightly for a minute or so. The frosting should now be a thin glaze you can drizzle onto desserts such as cakes and cookies.
Items you will need
- Creamy canned frosting
- Microwave-safe bowl
- Look for a canned frosting with "creamy" on the label, which is thicker than the whipped style of canned frosting and melts well into a glaze, while the lighter whipped frosting tends to melt into liquid.
